Another beach safety reminder … this time about local beach safety signs. We’d particularly like to draw attention to the Rother District Council safety signage at the Cliff End part of Pett Level beach.
It’s very important to be aware that the Cliff End cliffs are very unstable at any time of the year. Getting close to the cliff line is a highly risky practice. Our advice is to always stay away from the top and bottom of the cliff line, and avoid climbing or sitting in any of the under-cliff areas.
If you see anyone trapped or injured by the tides or falling rocks, please alert emergency services on 999 or the Coastguards on 112.
And we’ve said this before, but as well as reading the beach safety signs, another action you can take to reduce your risk and promote beach safety is to bring a charged mobile phone with you. This way, if you have a problem yourself or spot someone else in difficulties on the cliff, beach or in the water, you can alert emergency services and the coastguards.
You can also find out more about the hazards and risks at Pett Level and other local beaches by visiting our BEACH SAFETY PAGE.
